Chopin Autumn Nocturnes

Chopin Autumn Nocturnes

A Poem by Patricia Wedel
"

Acorn Caps and falling leaves in gold and red

"
It's that time of year when we don our 
Acorn Caps and walk through Autumn melodies 
of falling leaves in a Chopin nocturne of   
Mango madness and sunset glow of 
Tango tenderness... 

The wind blows in waves of lovely 
A cappella voices in colors of every 
Native American...
The Sequoia trees and Maple trees with 
sugar infused gold and red 
falling in the breeze... 

Silhouettes of geese in 
formation fly over meadows of 
bundled hay where 
horses and cattle play... 

Apples fall gently to the ground 
gathered up for pies and cider... 
Time for Barn Dances... Swing your partner 
round and round... 

"Mairzy doats and Dozy doats  
And liddle lamzy divey 
A kiddley divey too, 
wouldn't you?"

Quote:  
(Song written and composed by 
Milton Drake, Al Hoffman, and 
Jerry Livingston 1943)

How utterly enchanting, Pat! Your opening verse "of falling leaves in a Chopin nocturne" set the stage for the rest to follow, and what a pageantry of refined brilliance it is. Your dance of nature and poetry go hand in hand to compliment the majestic colors of the Sequoia and Maple trees. And the geese, flying over meadows...what rapture! One of your best, and an instant favorite for me!

You are a Full blue Moon... thank you... Pat
This poem is packed with lively descriptions & fun -- more so than any of yours I've read lately! I love how you play with word sounds: "mango madness / tango tenderness" . . . plus the stanza about apples falling & being gathered up for pies & cider, this conjures up a ton of autumn activities in the reader's mind, some of the most revered aspects of a favorite season for many. You surely brought autumn alive in ways I've not seen, even tho there are many autumn poems this time of year! I'd forgotten all about square dancing & you made it come alive with originality! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

There is such a beautiful, tender music in your words. How they carry us all over the glory of autumn, its mystery and magic alive in those sacred colors of life, letting us know it's okay to let go. Reminded me of when I lived in California and my family would go up to the foothills of the Sierras to a place called Apple Hill where we would get fresh cider and apple donuts, and enjoy every breath.

You have outdone yourself Pat. You have painted a picture of warm autumn colors and scents of apple cider. I'll see you at the barn dance my friend. Hugs Julie

A lovely poem, Pat.

You have painted a picture of your Autumn that is pleasant to the mind, soothing, vibrant and full of sound and colour. Your writes always take your readers into the scenery that you survey and this one is no different. Autumn has always been my favourite season and you have given me a glimpse into yours that I would otherwise never be able to see.

Fine poetry.
